This dramatic piece contains specimens that are truly special and are of a high geological interest to me. The glassy, black almost molten looking beads are known as Tektites. Tektites are natural glass formed from terrestrial debris ejected and altered during a meteorite impact.They come in a variation of colours from bottle green through to black.
I have so far come across Tektites as beads once, so this piece had to be something special. This almost out of this world piece has an agate slice as its centre piece, quartz, iron pyrite, raw garnet and of course those glorious black tektites.
This is currently at a length of 18 inches, if you wish to have it longer or shorter then feel free to specify in the comments box at checkout :)

Carreg Las Snowdonia is the result of an absolute passion for geology, rocks and minerals. Ever since i was a child, i was drawn to the rock. I used to fill my pockets with interesting looking pebbles from walks on the beach and then write off several washing machines by leaving them in there. I was lucky enough to spend my childhood in Dorset, living on the Jurassic coast. Striking gold i managed to kick start my career in the coolest store in Weymouth, Fossil Beach. It sold fossils, rocks and silver jewellery. It sold all the materials to make your own gemstone jewellery.I am now still all about the rocks, by day I am full time Geoscientist but by night i am an avid crafter and mountain biker. The necklaces are themselves a celebration of earth, all the pieces are natural and are the result of our active planet. These pieces are a labour of love and i hope they give you as much joy as I have experienced making them.
